Thanks William, I think it looks better on the grille, too
rjolly87 - Those license plates are sharp! And speaking of Park Ave C-pillar emblems, that'* what the emblem in my pics is from (I have a number of them, from the boneyard). An idea for your 1/4 windows might be vinyl "BUICK" logo-style lettering instead of a Tri-Sheild.
By the way, I didn't get rid of a grille w/ the emblem.. I still have the original grille (and lower surround). However, it was missing it'* emblem. But I'm not a fan of the huge emblems on that grille, anyway.. I think the larger size of the emblem makes the stock grille itself look smaller, and the small emblem on my present Park Ave grille makes the grille itself look larger (at least to my eye).
The smaller, stock grille with that oversized emblem makes a LeSabre look like a smaller, lower trim-level car..
at least that'* the impression I get from it when I see 'em. If you're going to have that large of an emblem,
then it needs
horizontal chrome strips emanating from it as on '55 thru '57 Buicks. THEN it might look cool.
The stock grille, with the smaller emblem, might be a cool option too. Might even consider chroming the grille surround also.. Wish I could find some Dagmars for it, too.. Hell, if I could retrofit a '51 Roadmaster grille into the car I'd do it in a heartbeat lol. And yes, before anyone asks, Ventiports are in her future..
And if it weren't for the thick plastic trim plastered to the sides of my car, I'd be posting pics of it sporting trim replicating this style -
How hard is it to remove the side trim on a '92 LeSabre..? and how many holes will I be left with..?
